Louisiana State University  

The mission of the School Counseling Program is to train self-motivated counselors who are educational leaders and serve as advocates for all students in elementary, middle and secondary schools. Through school and community partnerships, students demonstrate how school counselors work to promote academic success for all students, serve as leaders and change agents to improve educational practices, and demonstrate counseling effectiveness through ongoing outcome research and evaluation. Completion of the program qualifies students for certification as a school counselor in the state of Louisiana. Prior teacher certification or school experience is not required for admission to the program.
